  • One of the best and most beautiful state parks around. HUGE! But hard to get into if you want to camp.

  • With the exception of my campsite (#783) this place is fantastic. Nice beach, great hikes, great area, great biking... The facilities are nicely maintained. If you're near the beach, there's a pretty good concession stand for anything you might have forgotten. I'm giving it four stars though because Site 783 was THE WORST site that i could see in the park, particularly if you're tent camping. Fresh hard gravel to shred your tent floor, no decent trees to put up a hammock and pretty danged small. There are tons of good sites... 783 is not one of them.
  • We camped in the Tennison camping site in late August 2016. The weather was beautiful and warm like summer, but there were a lot spiders- no problem with mosquitoes, though. We had plenty of room between us and our neighbors, it was nice and quiet at night, and not far from clean flush toilets. Small nice sandy beach, good trails, and nearby ships and restaurants were good. Bring your walking shoes, bikes, and boats- great exploring to do.
  • This is paradise. I don't know of any place that feels so peaceful as this park. For anyone who has read about the history of the area, you would know what I'm talking about. The history of this area takes you back to a quieter time, a simpler way of life. But by no means an easy way of life. Either way, I am drawn to this park year after year as are many others.
  • One of the best state parks in Wisconsin! Awesome biking and hiking trails. Campsites are well maintained and bathroom are generally clean. The shower area could use some work due to over use and could use some updating. But the scenery makes up for it!
  • I've come the the park every time i've been in the area. It's just nice. I took a hike this time and really enjoyed the different trains the hike took us through. The very popular lookout tower was closed. I remember doing that last time, but hopefully the fix it up and open it up again. Will go back most likely when i'm in town again.
